As soon as I arrived here I felt very uneasy. There was a group of older men in the garden smoking and although someone showed me to the room, there was a very unwelcoming atmosphere. I felt the same in the morning when checking out. This did not come across as a backpackers hostel. As a solo female traveller I felt uncomfortable around these men walking around the shared spaces and additionally there was no lock on the door which I found extremely lacking. The bed and towels were clean and the toilet /shower facilities were fine. The only real positive was lots of nearby free parking and location. I would never stay here again given how uncomfortable and unsafe I felt.
Amazing welcome, nice setting, great communal area. Good bedding. My one negative is the floors in the toilet and showers were sticky and that grosses me out. For the location having the free parking is a plus. I would personally try somewhere else next time but if it was the only place vacant it would be okay
(Normally I don’t really write reviews but wow this was one of the worst experiences ever) As soon as we walked through the door we felt that something was off. We saw a kid running around and screaming and there was a guy with a large knife and a big sausage for his dog in the hallway, not the first thing you want to see when you check in and are exhausted. As soon as we checked in which was a huge mistake we were led to our room which was a very cold and not very nice room with uncomfortable beds. We had just done an exhausting roadtrip so we really wanted to chill. As soon as the guy closed the door behind us we were like, we are not gonna stay here. The room was way to cold and smelled strange and we just didnt feel comfortable because it felt like a homeless shelter. We went back to the reception and it took a while for someone to help us but we said that we were not staying and we wanted our money back. He wrote down our card details and said he would take care of it. For more than a month now I have been calling them and asking for my money back. Everytime they said they would take care of it, my friend has gotten her money back but I still havent got mine. And everytime I call they have a different excuse. I am a poor backpacker that can use all the money that I have a right too, especially in these Covid times and because I never stayed here. Please don’t stay here its the worst! …
Me and my friend have stayed just one night at a 8beds doom. It was a warm and tidy room. All staffs were nice and friendly. Although it was cheap, it included breakfast. There is free street parking just in front of the hostel.
We had a wonderful stay, thanks to the friendly team! Really homely feel and enjoyed relaxing in the lounge, wifi was great, bed was comfy and we enjoyed the free breakfast. Nice to help ourselves to a free cuppa in the afternoon too. Had a lovely drive down the peninsula, must do!
